MONDAYS ARE FOR FRESH STARTS
Mondays are for fresh starts, so whether you're building on the great work that you did last week, or putting it to one side and starting the week fresh. It's new goals, new planning and trying to be as happy and healthy as we can for the 'Look and Feel Good for Christmas' Initiative. Those Christmas parties, lunches, drinks out are all starting in around two weeks so lets do this!
Plan your weekly meals - it saves time, reduces waste, helps you stay on plan and means you don't have that 'What am I gong to make issue'!
Try to eat organic, homemade
Feel Hungry or are reaching for a snack - drink water!! You are probably thirsty
Book three to five exercises sessions into your diary. You don't miss meetings / dates - do the same with your exercise
Ditch the treats for the weekend - but then don't go crazy
Do not eat after 8pm and try and leave it 12 hours before you eat again, its called fasting but it allows you to digest and shows you what true hunger is, the majority of the time we are eating for habit not because we are hungry
Make your own protein balls and take them with you if you think you'll be out and need a snack!
This week I thought it would be super helpful to have my weekly food plan and meals and a couple of exercise routines you could do throughout the week. I hope it helps!

Mix and match, any order... These are my own workouts...Please exercise to your own level..
Walk everywhere, Lunchtime - get out for a 20 minute walk every day!!
Take the stairs all the time
Have something to look forward to ... book yourself a Treat!
It's not just kids who love a reward, think of something that you'll love for your hard work. Whether its a massage, facial, nails.. You deserve it and if it makes you look and feel good - its all part of the initiative!!
Love and kisses
